The worldwide unlocked variant of the Galaxy A5, with model number SM-A530F, will have a 412 x 846 screen and run on Android 7.1.1, stated the report. An unreleased Samsung phone with the model number SM-J337 has appeared on GFXBench and its key specifications have been revealed.
We recently heard that the Galaxy A5 would come with an Infinity Display, so we presume that the new Galaxy A7 would also come with one. Surprise, this is the same aspect ratio Samsung has used on the Galaxy S8+ (Amazon, $742.00) series and Galaxy Note 8, meaning that the mid-ranged devices will also be given the preferential treatment.
It's a 20% improvement in other words, and should mean that the Galaxy S9 - or whatever phones get this chip - can download an HD movie within 10 seconds, and the chip could also eliminate buffering when live-streaming or having video calls. The processor has been paired with a Mali-G71 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
This would mean a major upgrade to the A series as all previous Galaxy A handsets come with a conventional 16:9 aspect ratio display.
There is no information regarding the pricing and availability of the device as of now.
Unfortunately, the price of these devices will surely increase because an Infinity Display plus a Super AMOLED display combo is not cheap at all. For imaging, there will be an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP selfie shooter in the phone. Like its predecessor, we can expect the new model to come with an LED flash on both the front and rear panel. But since, the SM-J327 was launched in the U.S. it was powered by Snapdragon 425/430 chipset. We will probably see this chipset in the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, as well as in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that will launch in 2018.
